And we are so ready for Sharmen 2.0
BY ROXY BOURDILLON
On the same day that Showtime announced The L Word Reboot is definitely, totally, seriously happening for real, Sarah Shahi aka Carmen aka Shane’s old flame expressed her excitement about the revival and hinted that she’s likely to be a part of it. This news makes me want to do a happy dance.
Sarah told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that returning to The Planet was something she had discussed with the OG gang last year.
“The girls were talking to me about it, and my involvement was discussed very heavily that I would be in it. I think they want to keep it that way, and so does Showtime.”
So for all you Sharmen-shippers out there, there’s still hope! Maybe after all this time, Shane and Carmen can finally make a go of it.
Sarah also spoke about how meaningful The L Word was in her life. Describing the show as her “first big gig”, she explained, “I didn’t really know what I was stepping into until after, and I started speaking with women and getting letters… about how impactful it was.”
Look out for more on The L Word Reboot in the upcoming March 2019 issue of DIVA.
